Thank you for your interest in a rescued dog. Our descriptions contain all that we know about this dog today. We'll update as more information is known.
We urge all of our potential adopters not to fall in love with a picture. While we like to know what you like in looks, a dog is more than a pretty face. Our goal is to match you with the best possible pet for you and your home. We want to create furever families.

What kind of home would be best for me? We'd love to find an experienced hound home for Lucy and one with one other playful, affectionate dog in it. She would benefit from a buddy.
What is my personality like? Lucy is a female Treeing Walker Coonhound, 8 months old. She was dropped off in the middle of the night in a Drop Box at animal control - think of a mailbox with a levered door for cats and dogs. She was very shy when she arrived, but has blossomed in a few days in her foster home! She is smart and engaging, will come for affection and especially treats! She has learned to walk on a leash (still needs a little refining) and come inside from her fenced backyard, and figured out the doggie door on her own in 2 days!
Lucy plays with toys, responds well to a firm "NO" when she tries to play with other items, and she really likes to play with other dogs! She would do best in a household with another dog of similar energy. She's quite a lounger in her downtime, but makes the occasion plea for affection off and on during her day. She is crate trained and house trained, and we believe she will take to obedience training very well, she is very food motivated. She's a sweet girl, looking for a playful household.
How I act when I first meet new people: A bit timid but that will change
House trained? Dogs can be house trained if they are in the right environment and are allowed to follow a schedule as long as a physical reason doesn't keep them from being trained. A dog house trained in my home may not be in yours. We will help you teach your new dog this necessary skill and based on your schedule.
My age: Estimated birthdate 4/7/2016
Please note - we do not ship dogs. If you are interested in adopting, please take a look at the distance between the foster home location and your location and make sure you are willing to make that trip.
To apply, please visit our webpage at www.carolinapoodlerescue.org and visit the tab on the left that directions you to the online application.
Please note that when screening applications, we look at the entire home and then make suggestions based on what would be a good fit for your home. You are not being screened for a specific dog although we are looking to see what type of dog interests you - poodles or non poodles, color, age, etc. Others here may be a better fit for you. It is very difficult to get to know a living animal from a picture and a short description. Since we are constantly getting in new dogs, this may be a dog not in our listings yet. We want you to be very happy with your new companion and will make suggestions based on what you tell us about you.
